Maryland Representative Says
Place Is Used to Trap
Federal Officers.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.-A dingy
room at 1213 East Twenty-Second
St., Indianapolis, engaged the at-
tention of congress Tuesday as
Representative Linthicum of Mary-
land charged the place was a "gov-
ernment-owned speakeasy," used to
trap policemen.
The leader of the house wet block
made his accusation on the floor
during debate on a deficiency bill
which carries more than half a
million for increasing the prohibi-
tion bureau's staff. He read a letter
from Director Woodcock stating the
government paid rent forthe place
but that no liquor was dispensed.
It was opened, said the letter, fol-
lowIng mnany' complaints of collu-
sion between policemen and speak-
easy operators.
Another letter from Russell B.
Harrison of Indianapolis, son of
President Benjamin Harrison, who
termed the place a "poolroom
speakeasy" and charged the gov-
erment with "buying and selling
booze in order to trap policemen."
The Linthicum attack was the
opening effort of a wet move to de-
feat the prohibition bureau defi-
ciency appropriation. It was suffi-
cient to cause house leaders to
change their plans for immediate
passage of the bill. The Maryland
Democrat told the house if the fund
were approved it would go to "es-
tablishment of these speakeasies
for the purpose of entrapping citi-
zens and public officers throughout
this country."

Mrs. Armotr received her share
of the purchase price for 400 shares
of stock in the Universal company,
which was a part of her husband's
estate and which his creditors at
one time had refused to accept as
a valuable asset. The stock was
given to her by Armour as security
for a loan of $1,000,000 she made
him in 1926.
Armour was the founder of the
Universal concern and it was an-
nounced that the company will be
